Arrgghhhhh might have to change dates!!

Recommended Posts

So we have been planning for a wedding date of April 15 2010 at the Riu in Ocho Rios. I have just heard from my TA in Vancouver that prices for that week is about $400 more then the week after!! So now it looks like that we have to change our dates since we really don't want our guests to pay that much more! We might have to change it now to April 20/10 which kinda has a better ring to it.


I found a TA who is wonderful but the prices seem a little high. I have a lot of guests from Edmonton and vancouver and prices are all over $2000 CDN a person! Im sure that prices for my guests in the States won't be that much though.


Have any of you just had your guests kinda book on their own and how did that work out for you and the guests? It kinda seems that prices on the travel websites are way cheaper when I search for the dates in 2009...


What do you ladies think??

Hello Teresa~ All of my guests (only 12) booked their travel on their own. Everyone seemed to get a really good deal. A few even used their frequent flyer miles and are staying in their timeshares. Depending on the size of your group, I don't see why this would be a problem. I would give them the option to book on their own or your TA. Good Luck!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
